Do you like pub quizzes? Then you should go to Smelteverket on a Wednesday evening. The quiz starts at 6pm, and if you love music you can stay for the music quiz afterwards.
Smelteverket has the title “Oslo’s longest bar”. It is located downstairs in Mathallen (the fancy food hall in Oslo) on level with the river Akerselva. If the windows are open, you can hear the water rushing outside.
The quiz is a lot of fun, with a good variety of questions. They cover anything from sports to geography to current events and everything in between, and the level is not too hard. A team can have up to 5 members, and the questions are read in both English and Norwegian. A lot of people reserve tables, but if you are a small group you can always find a spot near the bar.
If you are thirsty you will be spoilt for choice here. The beer menu is so long that I can never make up my mind when it’s my turn to order, and they have both local craft beer and international favourites. They also have a good food menu, so don’t worry if you didn’t have time to eat before the quiz!
They have quizzes on other days too, check Facebook for more info!
